New Sacred Principle of the Church of Reality
The Principle of Bullshit recognizes that things that aren’t true just aren’t true. It doesn’t matter how many people believe it – it doesn’t matter that people have believed it for thousands of years – it doesn’t matter if you want to believe it – bullshit is bullshit – and if it isn’t true – it isn’t true.
The Principle of Bullshit is all about refusing to live the lie. To be able to call something the way it really is. To be able to face the reality of being wrong so as to create a starting point to make a better choice. That you can truly pursue reality if you continue to believe in things that aren’t real. You may have made a mistake – or millions of people might have made the same mistake for thousands of years. But when you know it’s all bullshit then you have to call it – accept it – and move forward, If you’re a realist then by definition you are supposed to give up what’s not real – or at least admit your denial if you aren’t ready to face reality.
The Tree of Knowledge is built on what is real and what is true. Bullshit that is passed off as reality pollutes the Tree of Knowledge and creates a weakness in knowledge itself. It inhibits growth and holds back our development. It keeps us from developing in a positive direction. Part of the dharma of the Church of Reality is the purification of knowledge. To expunge the bullshit and replace it with what’s real. The Principle of Bullshit asserts a duty to resist the powers of bullshit and move towards reality the way it really is. It requires courage and strength of character to go against the herd mind and refuse to live the lie.
